Help men talk about c_ _ _ _ r. Just say the word


When Thom (pictured) was diagnosed with colon cancer, he didn’t know where to turn for support. But Macmillan was there.

You know that when someone is affected by cancer, it can be hard for them to say the word, let alone ask for support. That’s why we’re encouraging more men to speak up and ask for help.

Whether they need information around finances, rights at work, or a friendly chat,
